You generally need to pay for things you find on an adventure, even if you kept them afterwards.
On the other hand i think slaves go for 30-100 gold and are a legal purchase.

Its been a while but I did read Demonic Males . The authors of that one went on for a bit about the bonobo and its differences from the other chimps
The Bonobo is both an evolutionarily recent development from when the congo split the species and they're living in chimp paradise so they don't have the same need to fight over anything with other tribes. I don't know if whoever wrote that blurb ever read Demonic males, but from what i recall they or my Animal Behavior professor hardly seemed to support female monogamy as natural. I believe he put it "Marry a republican then sleep with a democrat to diversity their genetic stock portfolio."

Here. Have a block of salt. You'll need it.
Ultimate equipment has
Gilded demon skull for 300 gp. If you pay 300 gp a human skull has got to be cheaper. If not you're a pathfinder. How long could it take before you come accross a skull? That was totally like that when you found them.
A ruby valued at Ruby, small 500 gp +2d4 × 100 gp so you should be able to just add that to the cost of the dagger. Given that going rate for gems i don't think a ruby blade would be feasible.

Why? Because the ones that need it aren't worth educating?
Plenty of smart driven people get turned off by a pointless education system. Plenty of smart driven people just don't have the time and money to go to college
For those who worry that college will be seen as "high school +", again this attitude is already present.
Its not the attitude of employers/the public I'm worried about so much as the reality. Paying a lot of money to get something that doesn't add any real value to the person seems kind of pointless. I realize this is already happening but can't see any reason to have MORE of it.

My argument is that you cannot educate people beyond their abilitie
No one is arguing against your tautology. What people are saying is that the segment of population for whom "the fries the limit" is such a small percentage of the population that you don't build social policy around them.

I did not say that the allegations or the people making the allegations had any credibility. :)
However, given the SRD language, I'm not sure how a proximity trap with a 3D 20' radius Alarm spell-like trigger could ever be directly disabled before tripping it (which is the whole point of the Alarm spell analogue - no saving throw and no spell resistance...and not even incorporeal are immune). But, that being said, there are other alternatives to a PC tripping it that would facilitate detection/activation (initial, at least), etc., such as:
Much like you defeat a laser detection system by screwing with the lasers, not the emiter, you futz with the magic field itself.
No tresspassing involvedYour cheese is still in the fridge when you go to make a sandwich
You don't get food poisoning if the government goon didn't wash his hands
Your objection is to taxation, which is absurd. Stop it, really. There is a genuine case to be made for conservatism and smaller government but the hue and cry of "the government is ripping food out of my childrens hungry mouths!" any time they tax you drowns out any points you might be making when you're not crying wolf.
That was directed at Obama and our alleged left.
Aldori dueling blade wouldn't be bad either, but I am pretty much envisioning a Swash/Magus (Eldritch Scion archetype) kitsune with a katana. Or maybe a Vishkanya instead of kitsune.
Just envision a katana, the artists certainly did with the dueling sword and its associated feats.
More like should the government use the sales tax from food to pay for a food stamp program.
And my answer is the same to both: if you're going to call yourself a progressive knock it off with the regressibe fundting. On the other hand it beats not doing it at all.
It shouldn't be a horrible mind numbing life it should be a horrible mind numbing few years you get to complain to your grandkids about.

Educating kids beyond their INT is like giving me course work on quantum theory - it's a demonstrable waste of time and money. However well intentioned.
Right, but for all but a few people that have severe handicaps there's something thats not beyond their int that will give them a better life than burger flipping. They might not design their Flipsomatic robot replacement but they can learn how to fix it.

There is a vast swath of humanity in between flipping burgers and quantum physics that can learn carpentry, masonry, high school councilor, cnc mlling, hvac basic computer operations, 3d printing, art, vet tech, contracting, commercial driving... good paying jobs that can get you respect and don't have a higher death rate than being a cop.
I think the larger problem is that the people in power simply don't need these jobs to be here. They're perfectly fine with the intellectual property and money being in america while the manufacturing and production arms of the economy are overseas where the labor is cheap, gets shot if they get uppity, and can wallow around in the factories air pollution and like it.

I don't believe there was an errata. I think people just forget it works on instantaneous potions and only remember that it doesn't work on potions with longer durations.
If the potion’s duration is measured in rounds, the wearer can activate the coat as a swift action to gain the potion’s benefits for 1 round, repeating as desired each round until the potion’s entire duration has been used.
Hallelujah we have the monsters in the back!
And the rest of the scenario was awesome too.
Finally, andorans get to be andorans. No more of this filing building permits and planting rose gardens. Rousing the rabble and leading them to glorious FREEEEDOOOOM! through the bodies of slavers.
I'll re read the scenario latter, but I didn't quite catch how the party is supposed to get to the slave market and meet up with these particular gnolls to be taken to the slave master. ( I had the captain of ship that brought them there Pass the Groetus cleric a tip to take his high quality Aasimar and others to the south docks, pen 6)
One curve the party threw at me was just outright buying the three slaves at the start. Definitely gave significant bonuses for dealing with the halfling.
Since the party successfully maintained their cover (barely) I thought they kept the chest with them?, so when they were ready to kick down the door they did it in gear.
looks left. Looks right
[chelaxian truth] I would never impose that penalty[/chelaxian truth]
Core rulebook, page 403
One handy rule to keep under your belt is the Fiat Rule—simply grant a player a +2 or a –2 bonus or penalty to a die roll if no one at the table is precisely sure how a situation might be handled by the rules. For example, a character who attempts to trip an iron golem in a room where the f loor is magnetized could gain a +2 bonus on his attempt at your discretion, since the magnetic pull exerted by the f loor helps pull the golem down.
I throw bonuses at my players far, FAR more often than penalties. Usually for RP.
Dominate person "Did you do it?"
Drat, sure it was him. Dominate the other one
Did you do it?
Good. Now write out a confession , dig a grave, put oregano on your head and smack the druids crocodile.
Speaking of encumberance... Darkleaf cloth. Halves the weight of leather armor much like mithral does (but doesn't make it a lighter catagory, probably because most leather armors are already light) and raises the max dex bonus by two- which you probably coulduse if you dumped strength to pay for all of that dex.

1. I disagree that a GM in PFS is authorized to impose a Diplo penalty for not bathing/coming out of a sewer, barring a specific instruction from the scenario to do so.
Pathfinder rules allow a wide latitude in assigning circumstance penalties to skill checks. As part of the pathfinder rule set they are part of the pathfinder society rule set.
BBEG has just wasted one round of what is , at best, his 4 round life.
The "TPC" then has to make the decision to either keep his readied action or do something else such as withdraw.
Tricky keeps his action.
If he maintains his readied action the BBEG then declares full attack... the first attack misses due to the "TPC" attacking and 5' step, but then the BBEG uses his 5' step and unleashing the rest of his full attack.
Which, unless the big bad is a whisk or a velociraptor, puts the bad guy at 1 attack at -5 and 1 attack at -10 for an 11th level character.
Just a thought.
Tricky has avoided 1 and a half rounds of BB attack at pretty much no cost.
At most pfs level, the big bad only has 1 attack.
Once you past thhose levels rocket tag sets in and combat only lasts 3 rounds tops
No. They can't. They're breaking the rules. your argument is that DMs can break the rules whenever they feel like it and thats not the case. Its no different than just adding monsters.
Your argument is that something that someone can demonstrate to you, in real life, is so unrealistic that you are compelled to
Ignore the rules of the game
Your argument is absurd. It is not nearly good enough to do that. There is NO call. No justification and no REASON to do that. No. You are not allowed, you are breaking campaign rules and you are doing it just to be a jerk to someone.
People have to move from game to game under a consistent set of rules. That's one of the rules of PFS. You cannot throw random curve balls at players just to limit their effectiveness. Thats no different than saying "Well you couldn't pull a weapon and move that far so your barbarian doesn't get to attack this round"
How the heck does arcane bond work in your games where you'd have to pull out any 1 of 100 spell component items?
And why can't the DM just say that the efficient quiver doesn't work in this case? If you say that it does and he says that it doesn't who wins? The DM.
Color code the fletchings. Or just put them cold iron on the left silver on the right. There' NO reason to make up your own house rules to nitpick players into uselessness, especially with something that treats the character as an idiot. Chances are pretty good you're firing all of the same arrow at someone. If you reach to your left hip to shoot a blunt arrow at skeleton 1 you're still going to be reaching to your left hip for shots 2 and three. You might have to switch ammo ONCE during your shooting.
Because its tailored. I pay more for a watch than a spoon even though they have the same amount of metal in them. The 11 dollar potato sacks I call a shirt can double as a Bedouin tent but likewise don't require a whole lot of manufacturing.
Isn't a big part of being a man NOT asking for directions?

Swords and whatnot come with the appropriate sheath, its one of the reasons the weapon weights are absurdly heavy for something you could swing without getting a hernia.
Cost: This value is the weapon's cost in gold pieces (gp) or silver pieces (sp). The cost includes miscellaneous gear that goes with the weapon, such as a scabbard or quiver.
This is why I'm really wary of DMs who play "Godtcha!" to mess up players. Chances are pretty good there's another rule somewhere that stops something really bad from happening.
